Elizabeth had an op-ed printed in the MetroWest Daily News today, explaining why it’s so important for Massachusetts residents to keep the Affordable Care Act (also known as “Obamacare”).
The Affordable Care Act is already helping families in the Commonwealth. Together, these reforms make families safer. Better health care coverage means more people will get preventive care — and that means catching serious problems earlier when outcomes are better and treatments are cheaper. Better health care coverage also means that when someone receives a bad diagnosis, the family won’t be crushed financially. And helping small businesses pay for health care premiums also means that they can compete against bigger businesses on a more level playing field.
